Baby potato biryani recipe

       Another rice variety which I wanted to make since a very long time as I am quite fond of the cute little potatoes. Biryani usually consumes lot of time and I was waiting for the opportunity and finally could make it last weekend. I used the similar recipe as I do with the vegetable biryani. But this time I added a green paste made with mint and coriander. Mint leaves imparts a wonderful flavour to the rice.
